Trina Solar reports that it recently shipped the first batch of its Vertex series modules. The company claims that its Vertex series of modules has a conversion efficiency of up to 21%, and can produce more than 500 W. The company says it has set a new benchmark for the global photovoltaic (PV) industry.
Incorporating 210 mm cells, the Vertex series modules integrate advanced three-piece, non-destructive cutting and high-density packaging technologies. The Vertex series includes bifacial double-glass modules and back sheet modules, delivering high power output, high reliability, high efficiency, and high-power generation.
According to data from company’s laboratory of PV science and technology, taking a large-scale power station in China’s Heilongjiang province as an example, compared with conventional 410 W bifacial double-glass modules, the Vertex bifacial double-glass modules can reduce balance-of-system costs by between 6 and 8%, and the levelised cost of energy by between 3 and 4%.
